Welcome to First Grade with Mrs. Ikemori
First grade is such a special year because students blossom academically and socially. I am very excited to work with all the students in my class! Every child brings something special and unique to our classroom community.
I will email a "Weekly Update from Room 8" each week. Please read this email because it will contain important upcoming dates/activities, information about what students are learning, and important reminders.
If you have questions throughout the year, please contact me via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone number 714-846-2801 x3208.
Degrees and Certifications:
This is my 15th year of teaching in the Ocean View School District. I have taught first grade, second grade, third grade, and fourth grade, but first grade is my favorite because the children are so eager to learn…not to mention, they make me smile every day!
My husband and I have two children that keep us busy. They attend school in Ocean View. Many years ago, I also attended kindergarten through eighth grade in Ocean View. I was born and raised in Huntington Beach. However, I left this city for about 10 years when I went to college at UCSB for my undergraduate degree, UCLA for my graduate degree, and UCI for my teaching credential. Prior to working with elementary school students, I worked in higher education as a counselor/advisor at Cal (Berkley), UCSB, and Cal State Long Beach. I also lived a year abroad in Japan teaching English. I enjoyed all of those professional experiences, but I love teaching!!!
